Events over the next few days

This is just another reminder of the events for parents and students at Placerita. But before we provide information about upcoming events, I would like to THANK YOU all for all your efforts with the Step it UP fundraiser. All of you, students and parents, did a fantastic job spending time and donating for the cause of helping our students have more opportunities to do great things. You all raised over $54 thousand dollars and after expenses for prizes and the big event that students get to participate in, we will have a nice amount to plan some great activities for the remainder of the year. You also did a great job with our donations for the Placerita Foundation at the beginning of the year raising over $7 thousand dollars. That money is spent on teacher requests for a variety of classroom needs throughout the year. Without your help, Placerita would not be able to have many of the extra materials that are used in several classrooms. We specifically offer some unique labs that go above regular requirements from the District and State that would not be possible without Foundation assistance. It is great to have a community that supports its students well and the staff at Placerita are truly grateful for all your support.

See below some of the events that we have happening at Placerita over the next few days. We would really like to have you participate in any or all of them.
